Councillors in Edinburgh have agreed to look into the price of scrapping the city's beleaguered trams project.

A special meeting at the City Chambers was called to brief councillors on the latest issues involving Tie and contractors Bilfinger Berger.

A contractual dispute has put the £545m scheme over budget and behind schedule.

Both the SNP and Labour put forward a motion to calculate the cost of cancellation before making a final decision on the future of the project.
